  • I never take any OTC meds pregnant or not. There are some natural remedies, too, if you're interested in that.

    Is this just a cough, other symptoms, how long has this been going on?

  • Mix equal parts of honey (antibacterial) and cayenne pepper (anti-inflammatory)

  • robitesin...or however it's spelled! lol. It's fine as long as it's just the cough medicine and doesn't have any other things in it (like allergy medicine or whatever). =)

  • No it's a nasty cold. I have asthma so it makes it a million times worse. I have a runny nose, coughing up stuff, & just not able to breathe well. Hoping to avoide an ER trip though. Today is day #3.

  • robutussin is awesome pregnant or not.. tastes nasty as hell but it's great. However since having my third LO I've found a humidifier is the BEST remedy for a cold. Works for him wonders. The doctors say cold meds don't work as well as they say they should! Try also Vicks vapor rub for congestion..
